Bruker this week introduced its new maXis 4G UHR-QTOF mass spectrometer.

According to the company, the machine offers "full sensitivity resolution" of greater than 60,000 FWHM and mass accuracy better than 600 ppb at acquisition rates of up to 30 full spectra per second across four-plus orders of quantitative dynamic range.

Agilent this week launched the Intelligent System Emulation Technology feature on its 1290 Infinity LC system.

The ISET allows the 1290 Infinity to emulate HPLC and UHPLC methods developed on other LC platforms, the company said, enabling full compatibility with any other system from Agilent's 1100 and 1200 Series LC product lines.

Dionex this week released Chromeleon 7.1, the newest version of its chromatography data system.

The new release features interactive charts for easier data visualization, a method speed-up wizard to generate UPLC methods from existing HPLC methods, and compliance tools including system suitability testing and electronic signatures.

The company also this week released its new ProPac SCX-20 columns for fast high-resolution separations of protein variants.

Waters this week launched its Acquity UPLC with 2D Technology, which the company said will give extra resolving power for complex samples.

The system comes with MassLynx Software for operational control and data management and is a compatible front end to Waters Synapt and Xevo mass spectrometers.
